Last night while out walking Gomez, we saw one these "little" bats:

(I can't get a picture to paste in here, just clicky)

Their wingspan can be up to 1 meter (3.2 feet) and i'm pretty sure the one last night was this big - It was big enough that it looked like it could have carried Gomez away if he wanted to...

The sound of the wings flapping, it was like a sound effect from Batman!
:eek:

OH, and yes, we are in the city....
